summary In this paper we describe our findings regarding the role of context in usability evaluation, particularly how the nature of the tasks can affect the users’ perception of the performance of a particular application. Our findings show a relationship between the variation in the nature of the tasks used for usability evaluation and the way in which subjects evaluate these applications afterwards using user -administered questionnaires. Our findings contradict the absolute benchmarking goal of some of these tools, and pose questions about the possibility of achieving that kind of benchmarks in software usability evaluation.
